I mean who doesn’t want to feel great and no worry about disease? …Everybody!

Given all we know about antioxidants and their beneficial properties, it’s amazing how more and more people don’t get enough fruits and vegetables into their diet on the daily basis.

Episode 9: Surfing Etiquette To Follow

Episode 9: Surfing Etiquette To Follow

May 14, 2019

The surfing etiquette is the most important thing to learn before paddling out. It is not so much about rules but more a code of moral conduct for everybody to stay safe and have fun in the water. The basic rules of surfing are not the same, they are more “common sense” and the surf etiquette is designed for safety measures. Surfers who don’t repeatedly follow the etiquette are often given the stink-eye, yelled at, or to the extreme beat up.

The surfing etiquette is about the right of way, not dropping in, know where to paddle, not ditching your board, not snaking somebody, being respectful to others and the beaches, not being a wave hog, knowing what to do if you mess up and when if you are a beginner knowing to not paddle in a crowded lineup.

Episode 7: Best Surfboard Bags

April 30, 2019

Buying surfboard bags are a lot like buying a surfboard- you can either buy a good one the first time, or you can waste your money until you finally get something of quality that will last you for years.

The short version of our recommendation on surfboard bags: it’s worth spending a little more on surfboard bags. While surfers who push hard or want to spend the big bucks will see the benefits in the $700 surfboard bag, you can get a really good one for $400. My recommendation for a good quality surfboard bag to travel for a reasonable price is the FCS Double/Triple Surfboard Bag Travel Cover. This is the bag that we have and we are extremely happy with the value and quality of this surfboard bag.

Episode 6: A Surfer’s Healthy Guide To Good Nutrition

April 23, 2019

Nutrition is all about what we put into our body. We need to look at our body as an expensive car. If you put the cheap gasoline in that car, it will not run to its best ability, but if you put the highest-grade gasoline, it will run better than ever. It is the same thing with our body, we need to put in amazing foods and liquids for our body to be performing at its best ability.

Whether you are a surfer at your ideal weight or striving to reach your weight goal is it simply a matter of burning more calories than you take in? The answer, I suggest, is no! Overall body health improvement as well as weight gain or loss must be factored in to the equation or you could be heading for problems.
